But... but... it's Firefox! Mozilla! Isn't this Evolt? :)

The next few big FF releases are entirely focused on speed/memory usage.
Until then, I use
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/restartless-restart/ every
few hours. command+shift+r. Takes 15 seconds.

Webkit's tools are great but there are still a few firebug features/plugins
I love.
http://firequery.binaryage.com/ (jquery data and event info)
http://www.deque.com/products/worldspace-fireeyes (accessibility)

I prefer the page inspection (faster) and the CSS panel/editing in firebug
as well.
